Legrand Integrated Solutions new offices in Sint-Niklaas
June 21, 2021
With many of our customers we have already carried out for years great and challenging projects and collected a lot of memories of our previous location in Beveren, known also for its large garden and bright training room. But after the earlier announced reorganization and the move of our inventory to France, the old building wasn’t fitting the company needs anymore. The new building needed to offer a modern work environment for customer care, sales, technical and driver development teams. Especially the options for easy testing and support to our customers was a key factor.
Kreon and Legrand’s Vantage team have worked together before so they were up to the challenge of finding a technical solution that could deliver upon the project specifications. Kreon saw light control as a key requirement for their new headquarters and showroom. The light control system had to offer their employees the ability to personalize their environments as well as provide flexibility and reliability at the same time for the showroom to quickly adapt to new configurations. The customization and adaptability requirements brought them to Xicato, well-known for their quality solutions in both lighting and advanced controls.
Automated solutions for one of the top five restaurants in the world
April 10, 2019
The restaurant needed an automated solution due to the fact that they offer their costumers a whole gourmet experience and it can not be reached unless customers are comfortable with the lighting and the temperature.
The project "BCP LAB Agency" (Banco de Credito del Peru - www.viabcp.com - the largest bank in Peru with over 450 agencies) is the first LAB Agency ever built of its kind. The challenge was to automate the shades to save energy and avoid extra warming, turn on/off the lights in predetermined hours adjusting lighting levels automatically and full air conditioning control.
The Legrand team needed to find a space that fit their needs—or, ideally, one they could tailor to their own specifications. They got what they were looking for in the Pleasant Grove site.
Daylighting was a key feature attracting Legrand to the new building, as it benefits from an abundance of natural light. The original architect paid tribute to the great Utah outdoors by incorporating glass walls, and structural bracing was moved inside to allow nature to flow into the space. While posing certain challenges, this design preserved the magnificent views, and employees love the natural light and connection to the outdoors.
As a bonus, the space provided the perfect setting for integrated lighting and shading control for daylight harvesting.
As interest and participation in the stargazing sessions grew, the park decided to upgrade their lighting control system to be able to turn off (or dim) pole lighting in the parking lots and dim walking path lighting systems to better accommodate the evening sessions.
Install a Vantage system in an existing office space with a full time staff working daily. The installation could not inconvenience the staff nor interrupt the daily work routine. In addition, Tomaro Architecture had specified Vantage on a number of previous projects under the tenet that the systems were user friendly, so the system had to highlight the simplicity that Neil Splonskowski’s Lighting Design has built into previous systems.
Vantage was tasked with developing a system that could control a pair of cutting edge presidential suites at the prestigious Costa Navarino Dunes hotel in Greece. The client sought out a high-end home automation solution that would provide his guests with the luxury and ease-of-use to which they are accustomed. The project had to be completed in a short window of time, creating an additional challenge for the Vantage dealer.
The Ronald McDonald House supports families of severely ill children by providing them a place to live near the hospital where their child is undergoing treatment. Many of these families are under a lot of stress—either having to relocate their lives temporarily or commute long distances frequently. While the Ronald McDonald House provides everything it can to these families; the demands are such that additional assistance is always welcome.
NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) recently renovated its conference facility and office areas in Washington, D.C. The goal was to remodel the association’s 6,000 square foot conference center and provide two main conference rooms with the ability to partition each into two smaller conference rooms. Advanced automation and audio video equipment technology needed to automatically adapt to the multiple conference room configurations with a simple interface for presenters coming from all over the United States and the world. Each room provides integrated audio/visual systems, wireless internet and teleconferencing capability and a 90” LED screen. Legrand businesses including Vantage, WattStopper, Wiremold and Pass & Seymour delivered wiring devices, lighting control, audio/video conferencing and integration with MechoShade, the project includes Equinox touchscreens and iPad app as interfaces. The project was designed and commissioned by Vantage.
With the creation of the Picasso Museum in Málaga, Andulicia, Spain a dream held by Pablo Picasso has been fulfilled: a dedicated venue for his work in the heart of his beloved native city. The Museum is set in an ancient Andalusian style Palace dated from the 16th century (Palacio de Buenavista, declared a National Monument in 1939) featuring renacentist architecture and Mudéjar elements.
Strategically located in Málaga, Spain’s historic city center, this impressive museum has become a major attraction. Splendidly restored, it is wonderfully located in the old part of the city. To automate an historical building such as this one was quite a challenge for Vantage. It was important to preserve the restored elements and historical artwork yet provide optimal lighting control as well as a highly sophisticated audio/video system for events in the 89,340 square foot space.
Providing as standard - to each apartment - a comprehensive control solution to seamlessly automate systems in a way that holds up to the demands of hotel guests, owners and a harsh sea-side environment. Vantage supplied, installed and commissioned a luxury control experience for each "Sky Villa" as well as the Clubhouse, Gym, Spa, Library, Conference Center and all of the landscaping, roads, parking garages and individual buildings.
La Mirada began as a modest stone adobe in the Mexican period. It was later remodeled to become an elegant home where the great stars of silent film were entertained. In 1994, the gallery wing was added to accommodate outstanding exhibitions that change several times a year. These changes represent a tremendous amount of work for the curators and facilities team. New art is hung on the walls and adjusted and at the same time the lighting fixtures have to be re-aimed and light levels readjusted and memorized by the control system. The competitive system installed since 1994 no longer performed this function adequately. Adjusting light levels would take four to five days. It’s important that Curators have the ability to move around the space while adjusting light and scenes to make sure the art work is presented optimally.
The ambitious upgrade of the 497 room luxury hotel began in May 2012, with the goal of enhancing the in-room experience of guests, upgrading both the aesthetic design and technology of the hotel, and enabling future energy savings. Hotel management selected Vantage to provide lighting and climate control, as well as a multi-language in-room guest room control interface for the high-end West Tower. The hotel remained operational during the entire renovation. The complete upgrade of the West Tower was completed on schedule in time for the opening of the 67th General Assembly of the United Nations on September 18, 2012.
